Denmark is not a country many people think is very exciting. I am very interested in Scandanavian though, its history, geography, archaeology and culture. Denmark has a milder climate than Norway or Sweden and also has flatter land. The capital is Copenhagen and there are 5.5 million people in Denmark. The countryside is low stress with lots of farms.

One of the great features of Denmark is its western coastline. Unlike many coastlines which do not face the ocean directly (due to other landmasses breaking the waves, bays, sounds, ect) it features large waves coming in and out like the famous coasts of California or Australia. Denmark is a peaceful country with a high standard of living. While its landscape doesn't feature canyons, mountains, deserts, cliffs or other extreme features, it is green and calm. The ocean meets the Jutland Peninsula and quitely land becomes sea. A few large islands in Eastern Denmark are highly populous as well.
